Mr. Franken has represented me in several matters in the last 2 decades. He is hardworking, diligent and direct. He is very forthright about the possible outcome but allows you to make the final decision without any pressure. He is confident enough to admit that he needs to consult an another attorney if the matter is out of his normal practice. He has kept his integrity when so many have lost theirs in today's society. No matter what your legal needs I would highly recomend Mr. Franken, if he does not feel he would be your best advocate he will refer you to someone he believes can be. With all the recent news of hubris and greed in our local legal community it is hard to know who to trust. I have had interacted with several attorneys in the past few years and in knowledge, legal ability, integrity and sincerity Mr. Franken is a cut above the rest. He is not self aggrandizing, arrogant, condescending, Machiavellian or corrupt as so many local attorneys have been portrayed in the news lately. Instead he is soft spoken, polite, sincere, knowledgeable and ethical. If more attorneys followed his example bad lawyer jokes would go out of fashion. Choosing Mr. Franken as your attorney will be one of the best decisions you ever make.
